Donald Trump wants to get in and out of the UK without running into any of those pesky protesters.

But they built a giant balloon to welcome him!

There will be a fancy dinner at the birthplace of Winston Churchill and a meeting with the Queen when Donald Trump makes his first official visit to the UK next week. But the US President will spend hardly any time in London, minimizing the risk of awkward encounters with angry protesters.

Announcing details of the itinerary on Friday, the UK government disclosed that Trump will attend a black-tie dinner hosted by Prime Minister Theresa May at Blenheim Palace, the birthplace of the UK’s celebrated wartime leader. He will hold talks with May at her country retreat, and spend a night at the residence of the US ambassador in London.

But in a break from custom for a visit by a foreign leader, he will not visit Downing Street.

The US ambassador to London, Woody Johnson, rejected suggestions that the itinerary had been designed to avoid protestors. “The President is not avoiding anything,” he told journalists. “The President is merely trying to get as impactful a trip as he can get in a 24 hour period.”

“Not avoiding anything” my ass! 

Trump is clearly terrified of being confronted by protesters and that has been reported on for over a year now. 

Trump simply cannot handle criticism which is why he keeps holding these bullshit campaign rallies in red states.

It is too bad he is such a snowflake because these British protesters are really pulling out all of the stops.

Courtesy of The Guardian:

Activists have promised to stage protests against Trump throughout his visit, with an event planned in London next Friday expected to be the biggest.

While he is in the capital, a giant “Trump baby” balloon, caricaturing him as a nappy-wearing infant, will be flown in the sky over Westminster after the Greater London Authority (GLA) granted the creators permission.

Don’t worry Britain, I am confident that the next leader of our country will be a person of strength and confidence and not such a sniveling coward.

      You have to retain my sense of confidence.

      Without hope, we stop trying.

      If we stop trying, we can’t win.

      If we can’t win, well then you know who does.

      Always keep in mind that they want us to give up.

      Which is why I never will.

        G.”At this point, no one is surprised that Trump would publicly disparage women or victims of sexual abuse.

        Still, that doesn’t mean women should be complacent about Trump’s behavior. “If we stop calling attention to the ways in which a sitting president defends and enables abusers, then we lose all of hope of trying to stop him,”
        “That’s who he identifies with, after all, having been accused himself by at least 20 women of various sexual misdeeds, including assault and RAPE.” REDRUMtOO

        “Calling Jordan an “outstanding man,” Trump said he believed the congressman when he said he knew nothing at the time about what was going on.

        “I believe him 100 percent. No question in my mind,” Trump told reporters before a rally in Montana on Thursday.

        His comments echoed previous statements of support for other men who were accused of sexual misconduct, including failed Senate candidate Roy Moore, accused of preying on girls and young women. “He says it didn’t happen. You have to listen to him,” – “But there’s been an urgency and a wake-up call to a lot of people about the problem that has been informed by the fact that the country knowingly elected a sexual abuser.” $BM

    OT-According to CNN:

    “Prosecutors for special counsel Robert Mueller said in a court filing Friday that they intend to present evidence at the trial of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort that a banking executive allegedly helped Manafort obtain bank loans of more than $6 million while the banker sought a role in the Trump campaign.”

    Mueller is now saying explicitly that there is a connection between Manafort’s fraud case and Donald Trump. The filing makes clear that Mueller’s team has evidence it will present in court to prove that there is a link between Manafort’s crimes and Mueller’s investigation into the Trump campaign.” “Mueller can use the Manafort trial to prove that Trump’s campaign was for sale, and possible doling out campaign positions in exchange for financial considerations such as loans. By convicting Manafort in court Mueller will be able to convict Donald Trump in the court of public opinion.”
    Y
    “Prosecutors have made clear that proof of any alleged collusion with the Russian government won’t come up at the trial, and they have told that to the judge.

    Everybody knows that Donald Trump micromanaged his presidential campaign, so if his campaign chairman brought a banker into the campaign then Donald Trump knew about it. By proving Manafort committed crimes, Mueller will also prove that Donald Trump was (indirectly) involved in them.”

    “The Purge.” Yes, this is real.
    “The only problem? Apparently unbeknownst to Trump, his lawyer and The Washington Post, the slogan had already appeared in a poignantly titled 2016 horror movie: “The Purge: Election Year.”

    What a cluster coffee.” ” Trump told supporters in Wisconsin that he wanted to put “Keep America Great” on green hats.”

    By using “Keep America Great” in its promotional materials, “Purge: Election Year” ― which, like its franchise predecessors, centers on the one night a year when people can legally murder the hell out of each other as an act of radical catharsis ― seemingly mocked Trump’s “Make America Great Again” phrase, effectively likening Trump’s America to its cinematic nightmare.
    ““The First Purge” hit theaters on July 4 and continued to make obvious jabs at the president by involving an unmistakable parody of a MAGA hat in its promotional material.”

    Trump Will Soon Separate Over 200,000 Children From Their Parents

    According to the Washington Post, the government will soon revoke temporary protected status (TPS) for several hundred thousand people from Haiti, El Salvador and Honduras. When these people are deported it will usually require that they leave behind their children who were born in the United States and are U.S. citizens.

    As the Post points out:

    “If you think the last few weeks of separating 2,300 children from their migrant parents along the southern border were heart-wrenching, imagine if 273,000 American-born children are separated from parents whose TPS is terminated.”

    That is what could happen if a new government policy is allowed to take effect.

        “Brzezinski continued: “How sick, how sick for someone in the White House to tweet ‘thank you’ to Donald Trump for these reunions. Because these reunions, they should have never happened. These children should never have been taken away from their parents. These children should have never been traumatized.””Some of the children and their parents’ records have vanished or even been destroyed, according to sources in the Department of Homeland Security cited in a New York Times article Thursday. This raises the possibility that some children may never be reunited with their parents.”

      FB”Millions of people the world over, the young and the young at heart, have come to love the imagination of the British writer J.K. Rowling, the creator of the famed Harry Potter series. Lately she has been in the news for her criticism of President Trump. But when I came across a speech she gave a decade ago at the Harvard commencement ceremony I was touched, moved and inspired by the power and resonance of her words in our world today. We are witnessing children separated from parents with no thought having been given to how they would be reunited. This is a horror that we must summon our collective empathy into action. Rowling summoned these impulses to exhort her audience of recent graduates to approach their lives ahead with a broad definition of “imagination”. It’s a message to which we can all afford to pay heed.
      Rowling stated:
      “Imagination is not only the uniquely human capacity to envision that which is not, and therefore the fount of all invention and innovation. In its arguably most transformative and revelatory capacity, it is the power that enables us to empathize with humans whose experiences we have never shared…”
      Rowling then went on to talk in harrowing detail about her work at the London offices of Amnesty International and the stories she heard and read from people facing murderous and repressive regimes.
      She continued:
      “Amnesty mobilzes thousands of people who have never been tortured or imprisoned for their beliefs to act on behalf of those who have. The power of human empathy, leading to collective action, saves lives, and frees prisoners. Ordinary people, whose personal well-being and security are assured, join together in huge numbers to save people they do not know, and will never meet. My small participation in that process was one of the most humbling and inspiring experiences of my life.
      Unlike any other creature on this planet, humans can learn and understand, without having experienced. They can think themselves into other people’s places.
      Of course, this is a power, like my brand of fictional magic, that is morally neutral. One might use such an ability to manipulate, or control, just as much as to understand or sympathise.
      And many prefer not to exercise their imaginations at all. They choose to remain comfortably within the bounds of their own experience, never troubling to wonder how it would feel to have been born other than they are. They can refuse to hear screams or to peer inside cages; they can close their minds and hearts to any suffering that does not touch them personally; they can refuse to know.
      I might be tempted to envy people who can live that way, except that I do not think they have any fewer nightmares than I do. Choosing to live in narrow spaces leads to a form of mental agoraphobia, and that brings its own terrors. I think the willfully unimaginative see more monsters. They are often more afraid.
      What is more, those who choose not to empathize enable real monsters. For without ever committing an act of outright evil ourselves, we collude with it, through our own apathy…”
      The speech is worth reading in full. I will share a link in the comments section below.” Dan the Man Rather

    Trump Crammed A Remarkable Amount Of Misogyny Into Just 24 Hours

    Donald Trump’s aggressive misogyny was on full display this week. Actually, it was just one day: Thursday, when the president of the United States demeaned women and the victims of sexual abuse while rushing to defend men accused of enabling sexual misconduct.

    Mike Huckabee goes on a tantrump saying Liberals are dehumanizing Trump supporters. When a Trump supporter is sporting a NOTW sticker on their automobile how are they dehumanized?

    • Beaglemom July 7, 2018 at 12:23 pm - Reply

      I hope that all Democrats are completely over “feeling sorry” for Trump voters. He and his administration and his Congress have done more damage to this country than any of us could ever have imagined. And it will only get worse.

      I wish Huckabee would start contemplating what he’s going to say when he’s met by St. Peter at the Pearly Gates and ushered down the stairs towards the “furnace room.”

      I’ve been an adult for over 50 years now and I have never thought that this country could turn into a fascist state but it’s happening now and fake-Christian Republicans like Mike Huckabee are in large part responsible.

    Trump Treason Confirmed As Putin Is Advising Him On Security Issues

    Trump thinks that Putin is his friend, and has turned to him for advice on security issues, which means that Trump is treasonously allowing an enemy of the United States to run national security.

    ‘…In conversations with Trudeau, May and Merkel, Trump is sometimes assertive, brash and even bullying on issues he feels strongly about, such as trade, according to senior U.S. officials. He drives the conversation and isn’t shy about cutting off the allies mid-sentence to make his point, the officials said.

    With Putin, Trump takes a more conciliatory approach, often treating the Russian leader as a confidant.

    “So what do you think I should do about North Korea?” he asked Putin in their November 2017 telephone call, according to U.S. officials. Some of those officials saw the request for advice as naive — a sign that Trump believes the two countries are partners in the effort to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula. Other officials described Trump’s query as a savvy effort to flatter and win over the Russian leader, whose country borders North Korea and has long been involved in diplomacy over its nuclear program.

    A similar dynamic has played out in Syria, where Putin has offered to cooperate with the U.S. military on counterterrorism and help Trump realize his goal of an American withdrawal.’

    The Post also reported that Trump wants to be Putin’s friend, and he thinks that they can be friends.

    Trump is fighting with US allies and letting Russia run security policy!

    An enemy that attacked the United States during the 2016 election should not be running US security policy, but that is what is happening.

    Tracking the in-campaign movements/ties of both Putin and Trump aides—including Trump’s closest advisor, Tom Barrack—provides the strongest evidence yet that during the 2016 campaign Trump was illegally negotiating Russia sanctions policy.

    ‘A cesspool of deviancy’: New claims of voyeurism test Jordan denials

    A half-dozen former wrestlers at Ohio State, where GOP Rep. Jim Jordan once coached, said they were regularly harassed by men in their training facility.

    New allegations in the Ohio State University sexual abuse scandal are threatening to intensify the political firestorm facing its onetime assistant wrestling coach, powerful GOP Rep. Jim Jordan.

    A half-dozen ex-wrestlers told POLITICO they were regularly harassed in their training facility by sexually aggressive men who attended the university or worked there. The voyeurs would masturbate while watching the wrestlers shower or sit in the sauna, or engage in sexual acts in the areas where the athletes trained, the former wrestlers said.

    Larkins Hall, the building that housed athletic teams, became such a well-known target that people who frequented it at the time have reminisced in anonymous postings online how easy it was to ogle naked members of the wrestling team.

    The situation was so egregious that former wrestling head coach Russ Hellickson would at times have to physically drag the gawkers out of the building, several sources familiar with his actions at the time said. Hellickson also pleaded with the university multiple times to move their athletes to a private facility, the sources said. Jordan served as Hellickson’s No. 2, and the coach has been described as Jordan’s mentor.

    The accusations could exacerbate Jordan’s troubles. He was the wrestling team’s assistant coach from 1986 to 1994 and has adamantly denied knowledge of any sexual abuse.
